The Metro Hit Awards 2022 took place last night at the Hong Kong Convention Center. This year 63 awards were presented. Recently tested positive, Hins Cheung King Hin won 3 awards to become the big winner; popular guy group MIRROR won 9 awards. STARS ACADEMY students also performed decently with 5 awards. "Hit Male Singer" winners were Terence Lam Ka Him, Jay Fung Won Him and Keung To; "Hit Female Singer" winners were Joyce Cheng Yun Yi, Vincy Chan (Wing Yi) and JW. Gigi Yim Ming Hei and Mike Tsang Pei Tat won their first "Hit Breakthrough Singers".
Performed two concert series this years, Hins Cheung with CHERLAS won "Hit Airplay Index Song". At the same time he also won "Hit Performance Award" and "Hit Singer of the Year" to become the big winner among male singers, but because he recently tested positive he was unable to accept the award in person.
Attending singers and groups included Jay Fung, Terence Lam, Mike Tsang, Alfred Hui, Jason Chan, Joyce Cheng, Vincy Chan, JW, and "STARS ACADEMY Popularity King" Gigi Yim. As for record companies, MIRROR and COLLAR's label Music Nation Group won 12 awards. Emperor Records won 8 awards, and Media Record and TVB Music Group both won 7 awards.
During the opening many singers appeared on the stage for the group photo. Jay Fung, Joyce Cheng, Vincy Chan, JW, Terence Lam and others were in the front and center, popular guy group MIRROR were in the second row center. When they appeared the crowd cheered, but not the entire group was present. Keung To was recovering from an injury. Alton Wong announced on social media that he would be absent due to illness. Tiger Yau was absent as well. Opening the show, girl group COLLAR again was not in full force as only Gao, Winka, Day, Sumling and Marf attended. Gigi Yim and Mike Tsang stood in the third row but still in the center. Warner's singers after missing the earlier award show press conference continued to be absent last night. Despite having many songs on the chart this year, Panther Chan Lui, MC Cheung Tin Fu, Kaho Hung and others were absent.
Terence Lam presented "Hit Rookie". The 12 winners were After Class, COLLAR, Sabrina Cheung, Cloud Wan, Yumi Chung, Phoebus Ng@P1X3L and others. The "Hit Music Production" award winner On Chan Kin On said that at first he was not able to accept the production ward, because the production award represented music, lyrics, arrangement, producer and others. It was a very heavyweight award and he felt that he has not reached the goal. He has only produced himself and has not worked with other singers. He hoped to have the opportunity to in the future. Cloud admitted that she has thought about winning the rookie award, and felt truly very happy to. She was also very pleased with and liked her work. She hoped in the future she would also be able to release a song that she would create.
The Ten "Hit Songs" included MY PLACE (Joyce Cheng), SONG FOR THE ABSENTEES (Jay Fung), SHY AND SILENT (Kira Chan), HAVE ME (Jason Chan), NOBODY BUT YOURSELF (Alfred Hui), REGRESSION (Terence Lam), BLOODY WARMTH (Vincy Chan), PERHAPS I AM STILL NOT DIFFICULT ENOUGH (Mischa Ip), FLAME (Gigi Yim), and I THOUGHT (Mike Tsang).
"Hit Male Singers" winners were Terence Lam, Jay Fung and Keung To; "Hit Female singers" winners were Joyce Cheng, Vincy Chan and JW.
STARS ACADEMY member Chantel Yiu with #BFF won "Hit New Media Song"; Gigi Yim aside from FLAME's Hit Song Award also won "Hit Breakthrough Singer"; Mike Tsng as with I THOUGHT won "Hit Song" and "Hit Breakthrough Singer".
In addition, this year the award show theme was "Music New Leaf, Create Legend". With the goal of attentively cultivating "new leaves" as the goal, the event enabled music fans to truly focus and enjoy how a group of "new leaves" brightened up the stage, like "leaves become trees, trees become forests" they would make up the Hong Kong music future. This year broke through limitations and added digital creative elements, setting up the firs Hong Kong "Hit Metaverse voting" for a group of music fans to vote for Hit Songs on the Metaverse.
